Multiple C&D winner INGLEBY ARCH scored for the first time over 7f here last month. He's back over his best distance today and David Barron's charge can confirm latest running with Bravo King and go in again. Punching is another who does most of his winning over this track and trip and he should be thereabouts, but Dickie Le Davoir will do well to repeat his 2008 victory in this given today's unfavourable terms. Salerosa has won over longer trips at this track and has a chance, but Sophie's Beau will do well to get involved.
